The Akebia quinata is a stunning deciduous, fast growing climber that originates from China, Korea and Japan. In the spring (April-May), maroon-chocolate coloured flowers are in bloom which give off a slight sweet scent. The flowers stand out beautifully against its bright green leaves that are composed of five obovate leaflets. The leaves are known to have a slight purple tinge during the winter months. The Chocolate Vine is great for training against a wall.
